  1. 3 Solutions To Water-Intensive Fracking
    9/23/2015

    Are you for or against it? It seems everyone has picked a side in the debate over hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”), but most conflict would likely fall away if fracking was performed in a proven safe and sustainable manner, verified by a reliable source.

  2. EPA's Water Report: A Good But Incomplete Start
    9/11/2015

    One study cannot answer every question about water pollution risks from oil and gas drilling, nor should it be expected to. But as my colleague Nichole Saunders pointed out, the oft-quoted statement of EPA’s water study – that it found no evidence of “widespread, systemic impacts on drinking water sources”– implied to some that activities related to hydraulic fracturing had been declared risk-free.

    The global oil and gas industry association, IPIECA coordinated a session during World Water Week in Stockholm on water management within the sector from now to 2030.  

  4. Hydraulic Fracturing And The EPA Water Study: Where Do We Go From Here?
    8/3/2015

    It’s been two months since EPA released its much anticipated draft report on hydraulic fracturing, and organizations like ours are busy preparing their official comments, which are due at the end of August. But based on what we have learned so far and what has been written in the media, it’s important to spend some time on what the report said — and didn’t say — and what it all means.
